The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button - F. Scott Fitzgerald

So, uh, that was really sad. First off, Hildegarde was petty and so was Roscoe. They completely believed he could control his aging. Like??? That's not how that works. Roscoe had no type of respect for his father and just thought he was a burden.

 

The worst part was his slow decline to newborn. Like it was clearly a metaphor for old age, but like, it was the fact that he was visibly a baby that makes it so much sadder??

 

I need a hug now, or some tea at least.
